it. you know, i've come on with you guys and i think we should have been much clearer about medicare. we understand how it works. it was a democratic initiative. this expanded five years or something like that. >> but, for instance, medicare for all. >> yeah. i mean, i think that that has been messaged very well and i also think let the senate and housework its will, that by definition is an unclear thing and muddled and the like. i also think something else. look, we're doing tough things. you're doing health care no matter who did it you're going to take a lot of lumps for it. i think you can critique how it's done, but there's no doubt the president is trying to solve the problems of the american people. the problem we have, this reminds us more of 1993. the president is doing incrementally good things but we in congress are taking our lumps every step of the way. and i also think when people who are against things are always more animated than people who are for things. there's a lot of headwinds. i don't want to do a postmortem until there's a mortem. >> this could be new hampsh
